We headed west from Newgrange to the Galway coast, spending the night in Kinvara at Fallon’s B&B (highly recommend it, super nice owners and fab Irish breakfast!) Kinvara (Cinn Mhara) means “head of the sea” and it’s a lovely little seaport village.
Kinvara, Ireland – Galway Bay
After a hearty breakfast, we plotted a course for the Cliffs of Moher in County Clare. I could hardly contain my excitement! The day was gray and cold and a fierce wind was blowing in from the sea. We layered up, boldly walked against the wind to where the earth fell away, and crawled out to peer over the edge to the crashing sea below.
We were chilled to the bone after scampering about on the Cliffs of Moher so we stopped in at Gus O’Connor’s Pub http://www.gusoconnorsdoolin.com/ in Doolin for some hearty Irish Stew and brew.
From Doolin we continued on; exploring the Burren and stopping at Poulnabrone, a Neolithic portal tomb.
In Galway City we had hoped to partake of some delicious offerings at the Galway Food Festival http://www.galwayfoodfestival.com/ but the rain put a damper on the festivities.
